Default Look at what I did!!

I have had this picture for several years. It is of my great grandfather and his family. My great grandfather is the second one from the left in the back row. He was 16 at the time. I am not sure who everyone else is. The picture itself is 111 years old. It was taken around 1898 when my great grandfather was only 16. ANyway, I think it is starting to fade too much, plus all the marks and tears in it. So, I decided to try to fix it. Here is my result so far. Please tell me what you think about it. This is my first time to do this kind of thing with pictures. I think it turned out great!!!

Melanie, you did a great job fixing the imperfections! What a difference!

I love playing around and restoring old pictures... it is very time consuming though!
